Google Street View Halted in India [bbc.co.uk]
Google has stopped collecting images for its Street View service in the southern Indian city of Bangalore after objections from police.

Police in Bangalore said they had security concerns and that Bangalore was a "highly sensitive" area.

Google launched its project to collect high definition images to give Google users 360 degree views of streets only last month in Bangalore.


Cameras mounted on cars and tricycles had been taking pictures in streets across Bangalore.

"We received a letter from Bangalore's commissioner of police and are reviewing it. We will not be collecting any more images for Street View until we speak to the police," a Google spokeswoman told AFP.
